Hi All,
I need to create a transformation that repeats (copies) modelA, with some
exceptions to few elements.
Preferably, I'd like it to be an in-place transformation.
Is that possible with ATL? How?

Thanks in Advance,

- Leila

In ATL 2004 (i.e. the previous major version of ATL), there is a
"refining" mode which allows defining refinement transformations by only
specifying rules concerning the elements to modify. See the appropriate
section 3.1.2.2 in the user manual:
http://www.eclipse.org/m2m/atl/doc/ATL_User_Manual%5Bv0.7%5D .pdf

I think this is what you want to do.

However, ATL 2006 (i.e. the current version of ATL) does not yet support
this "refining" mode. So you will have to precise in your transformation
that you want to use the ATL 2004 compiler (see
http://wiki.eclipse.org/ATL_2006).

Hi Hugo,
Thanks for the quick response. Is there a particular ATL/Eclipse versions
I should be using to be able to change the compilers?
I'm trying to put that comment : -- @atlcompiler atl2004 and still get
error : 'unexpected token : refines'.
I could try to use an older version, but which one u suggest? :)


Thanks again,

- Leila

Hi,

The correct word for the refining mode is "refining" and not "refines"
(documentation bug that will be soon corrected)
